My self-summary
I went to Rutgers University and studied History with a minor in Political Science.

I like 19th and 20th century European history, World War I, Russian, and American history.

I enjoy listening to The Teaching Company lectures.

I do not travel much, but I'd like to. However I do like going to Montreal.

I enjoy hanging out in coffee shops, despite the fact I don't like coffee.
I would love to be able to go to museums and the theater more.
I really like Central Park, but I don't get to go there enough.

I know all the lyrics to End of the World by REM.

I like listening to Garrison Keillor and Paul Harvey.

One of my tv idols is Alex P. Keaton.
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work as a Paralegal for a small law firm in New Jersey.
I have an interest in the legal profession, but if I had my choice I'd go back to school and study history.

I have yet to figure out what I want to do with my life, but I'm content with the job I have now.

Ideally, I'd like a job doing research in Western European history and/or Russian history and politics.

Also I have an interest in being a lighting tech in the theater, but I never pursued it.
I’m really good at
Making pop culture or historical references. I'll do this in jokes, few people get it.

TV:
I enjoy watching Ken Burns documentaries (Civil War and American Experience episodes).
I've been watching a lot of great British shows
such as Peep Show thanks to Netflix recommendations.

How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family, Big Bang Theory,
Doctor Who, Freaks and Geeks, The IT Crowd, Flight of the Conchords, Daria, Gavin and Stacey, Family Ties, Downton Abbey, New Girl, Black Books, Parks and Rec.

Books: I'll be honest, I have a lot of them but I haven't read them all completely. I have a lot of books about history and politics. I've read a little bit of a lot of them, but my interests change very rapidly so I tend to pick up a book on a whim and never finish the last one. I like Sarah Vowell though. I also just finished The Fault in Our Stars and enjoyed it very much.

Currently the books next to my bed are Misquoting Jesus, two books about the Russian revolutionary Nikolai Bukharin, They Thought They Were Free, and A World Undone: The Story of the Great War.
The six things I could never do without
My friends
Netflix
Sweater vests
Tweed Jackets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Moving to the middle of nowhere in upstate New York and living in the woods, despite the fact I'm not an outdoorsy person.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with my friends, but not too late since I work on Saturday morning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I always mentally pause before I'm about to use the word affect in a sentence, because I'm never sure if I'm supposed to use affect or effect.
You should message me if
